## Recommended Posts

I have a assignment due by Friday and ive done most of it but a few problems are really killing me and I was wondering if I could get some help and by help I mean the answers lol to some problems if u can help me I will be greatly apprciative.

3. Find the length of arc S, if r= 10 and its like a 0 with a line in the middle = pie over 6.

4. Find the area A of the sector if the 0 with the line in the middle = pie over 4 and r = 6

5. If the latitude of Chicago is about 42 degrees and the radius of the earth is about 4000 miles, how far is Chicago from the eaquator? (use pie = 3.1416)

please can some one help me its a matter of life and death lol.

Pi doesn't have an e in it. (I've has an apostrophe, u isn't a word etc, other old man comments...)

Otherwise use the formula you were given for arc length (or sector area) in term of angle.

Unless I'm mistaken, this seems like pretty elementary geometry.

Just use area of the sector for A is:

$A = \frac{x}{2 \pi} r^2$

where $x$ is in radians. Maybe some Pythagoras but as some other people posted, it's not very difficult I think.

Ha.. I love pie and pi.
